Habits, not Resolutions

"Perhaps the biggest resolution at New Year’s is to get fit — start exercising, start eating right, and all that jazz.

But resolutions never last. As you might already know, I’m not a fan of resolutions.

Instead of creating a list of resolutions this year, create a new habit. Habits last, and they lead to long-term fitness (and more). They require more patience, but they are worth the wait."
- Leo Babauta

I agree! I've never been a fan of New Year's resolutions, because guess what? They don't last. I think creating "habits" is a MUCH better idea.

If you need a new year to start on a goal, to me that means you're not going to stick with it. Because if you were really committed to making a change, you wouldn't need a "new year" to do it. You would start whenever, RIGHT away!

A new year won't do anything special for you. It's just another day; another month. Most people's resolutions are probably the same ones they had last year...and the year before that! How come you didn't stick to it LAST January, huh?
